Streamlined eviction process - criminal or antisocial behaviour: statutory guidance for social landlords

Guidance on using the streamlined eviction process when recovering possession of a tenancy in criminal or antisocial behaviour cases.


The Scottish Government would like to thank the stakeholder panel who helped us draft the guidance, in particular the Antisocial Behaviour Officers’ Forum, the Antisocial Behaviour Lawyers’ Forum, the Association of Local Authority Chief Housing Officers, Glasgow West of Scotland Forum of Housing Associations, the Chartered Institute of Housing (Scotland), the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations, Shelter Scotland, the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service, and the Registered Tenant Organisation Regional Networks.

We also thank all the individuals and organisations from across the social housing sector who contributed their time and expertise during the development of this guidance, and those who attended the 16 ‘Housing Act Guidance Consultation Events’ that were held around the country and hosted by the Tenants Information Service and the Tenant Participation Advisory Service (Scotland) on our behalf.
